Palestinian Authority files report on Al Jazeera reporter’s death to ICC

The Palestinian Authority has filed a report on the killing of Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh to the International Criminal Court, according to Israeli media reports.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyadh al-Maliki announced that the PA officially contacted the ICC to start an investigation against Israel, The Jerusalem Post reported.

“What happened in the killing of Abu Akleh is a crime,” Maliki declared.

There are conflicting reports over who was responsible for the 51-year-old journalist who was killed while covering a military raid in the West Bank city of Jenin earlier this month.

There has been widespread condemnation over the killing.
